HP TouchPad now available in US only

The HP TouchPad will now only be available in the US. Could this be a sign that Hewlett Packard is finally calling it a day on the webOS tablet?

HP has revealed that it will be scaling down availability for the HP TouchPad, with the tablet now only being made available to US customers. Senior officials at the consumer electronics firm said new stock will be released into the US market next month, although a solid date hasn't been given.

In a official statement, HP said: "A limited quantity of TouchPads will be available in the coming weeks in North America only. In EMEA we are discontinuing the webOS hardware operations and will not offer any additional products beyond what might be currently available in selective outlets".

The HP TouchPad has proved to be a runaway success since its launch just a few weeks ago. Ironically this success comes after they dropped the price to $99, when it was revealed that Hewlett Packard would be cancelling their tablet operations and reviewing all hardware operations. Running the latest incarnation of webOS the tablet has been seen running Google's Android operating system as well.
